- A hilarious throwback video of President Cyril Ramaphosa was shared online
- The clip shows a much younger Ramaphosa fly fishing with Evita Bezuidenhout
- While the video was hilarious, the closing statement held a hint of truth for South Africans today
President Cyril Ramaphosa is a charismatic leader who is able to lead the country with wisdom and confidence all while giving South Africans moments of pure joy.
It appears the head of state has always been a ray of sunshine even before becoming the country's beloved leader.
Recently, a throwback video was shared on Facebook showing Ramaphosa fly fishing with Evita Bezuidenhout- aka Pieter-Dirk Uys.
The throwback clip was shared on the social media platform by a man, Georg Knoke, who dubbed it "an absolute classic", and we could not agree more.
The video shows Ramaphosa with Evita in the water as he shows her how to fly fish. At one point, Evita says: "Ek is n bietjie bang (I am a little scared)," to which Ramaphosa replies:
"No, no, no, don't worry. I am here and if you feel like you're sinking, just hold onto me. Even though I can't swim, I will be able to help."
Evita then makes a statement, which ironically could not have been truer during the coronavirus crisis now.
She said: "That's what we all say in South Africa - if we feel we're sinking hold on to Cyril."
Take a look at the video below:
Briefly.co.za previously reported a group of moms and kids paid tribute to the president in the most adorable way.
The children were filmed sending sweet messages to the head of state to thank him for making the tough decisions to keep South Africans safe.
